Mount Saint Helens

Mount Saint Helens Trip Report (#6826)

This Tuesday in June turned out to be a great day for a hike to the top of this peak.

Enough snow remained to allow traversing the snowfields rather than dealing with the typical slow slog via Monitor Ridge.

This was the second summit of this peak for my son, Andy and myself. We brought along our friend, Hugh, who made his first summit in style.

I highly recommend this trek for its accessibility, and great views from timberline to the top.

Remember to take plenty of water and sunscreen with you. This can be a hot, long day.
